NC STIR

About the nc state of the tech industry

**now accepting 2021 underwriters**

In 2014, the North Carolina Technology Association (NC TECH) launched an initiative to produce an annual North Carolina State of Technology Industry Report (NC STIR).  The inaugural report was released in January 2015, with annual updated releases early in each subsequent year.  The report is housed on a dedicated website (www.NCSTIR.com).  A Key Findings summary is published available in print/digital, and a live briefing is held to release highlights of the data collection. 

The valuable information in the report has a variety of uses:

  • Repository of facts, statistics, trends, narratives and insights into NC’s tech industry
  • Guide for companies considering headquarter relocation or operations establishment
  • Source of data and trends for policy makers
  • Collection of stories that highlight the vibrancy of the state’s tech sector
  • Resource for innovation sector organizations, economic development community, and media

tech innovation index (new in 2021)

NC TECH will add to the research portfolio by developing a North Carolina Tech Innovation Index (new in 2021) to provide a deeper dive into a myriad of talent measures and business/environmental qualities to show why the state is a place for tech organizations and professionals to thrive.
